Lions give newly-acquired Bodden four-year extension
NFL.com Wire Reports
The Detroit Lions reached agreement with newly-acquired cornerback Leigh Bodden on a four-year, $27 million contract extension, NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports.
Bodden has two years left on his contract at base salaries of $1.7 and $1.8 million. He will receive a $2 million signing bonus this year and an option bonus of $8.6 million in March.
However, the option bonus is not guaranteed. If the team does not pick it up, Bodden will become a free agent on the first day of the 2009 league year, which in essence shaves the 2009 year off of his contract. Assuming that the option is exercised, Bodden will be under contract to the Lions through the 2013 season.
